The Peninsula Health Care District Board of Directors has partnered with San Mateo Union High School District and Stanford’s Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing Center to develop and launch a school-based teen mental health model that will:

1). Identify problems early;

2). Get students needed help promptly;

3). Improve coordination between school providers and parents.

The District committed $1.5 million to this project, which will serve seven high schools and 8,500 students. PHCD funding supports three new Health and Wellness Coordinator positions responsible for developing and implementing a multi-tiered system of wellness and mental health supports, training for staff, developing wellness activities and interventions, and collecting pertinent data.
